Compatible With Linux Campaign


Published 2009


A "Compatible with Linux" marketing campaign:

One weakness of the Linux and open source community model of product development is that there are little or no profits to use in paying for advertising for the OS and its applications. At the Going Linux podcast, we have produced and aired these recordings like product reviews, on our show, and offer them to the developers, community and podcasters to use and distribute for free. The thought is, maybe if we begin recording unpaid commercials for our favorite Linux applications we can at least contribute to a grass-roots, Creative Commons licenced, marketing effort to spread the word about Linux-compatible commercial and open source software.

The first recording is a promotion for Yugma.com, a commercial web conferencing service. It starts out like commercials for other services you may have heard on other podcasts. One problem with most Yugma competitors is that they have NO support for Linux. Another is that they are tremendously more expensive. Yugma offers full support for the 3 most popular desktop operating systems, costs much less, and the basic service can be used beyond the full-featured 30-day free trial period, at no charge.
